The orchestra were due to be a big part of the Town Council's VE Concert 😔. Let's hope we can reschedule in the future. Orchestra rehearsals are also suspended for now. Take care everyone.Our #pershoreabbey #ve75 commemorations have also had to be postponed due to the current situation. We are deeply saddened but will hopefully review them later in the year. ...

Meet the Orchestra! 🎶
Sarah is part of the first Violins.
“I started playing the violin at the age of 7, having always been surrounded by music. I have very early memories of my grandpa playing Chopin to lull me off to sleep, of dancing round the kitchen like a lunatic to Saint Saëns' organ symphony with my mum, and later of watching her playing in orchestral concerts and being mesmerised by the violin section. I've always been lucky to have a talented accompanist on tap, and mum and I still play together when time allows.

I really enjoyed being part of Worcestershire Youth Orchestra and later the university orchestra at Leeds. As well as playing with the Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra, I love playing in a string quartet and feel lucky to have met so many wonderful people through music making.

As a career I am head of languages in a secondary school and teach French and German. I also help out with music in school, playing with the orchestra, and even being persuaded to learn the bass guitar for a school production of Grease.”

We are keeping our fingers crossed Sarah will be playing in our concert on March 7th. She is due to give birth to her first baby any time! We send all best wishes to mother and baby!
